Claims- doorknob9

Brannan Vines has never been to war, but her husband, Caleb, was sent to Iraq twice, where he served in the infantry as a designated marksman.

Factual Claim- States directly who Brennan Vines husband is and what he does

Even doctors can’t say for sure exactly why he has flashbacks, why he could be standing in a bookstore when all of a sudden he’s sure he’s in Ramadi, the pictures in his brain disorienting him among the stacks, which could turn from stacks to rows of rooftops that need to be scanned for snipers.

Evaluative Claim- Involves judgement and characteristics of Caleb and his flashbacks

You can’t see Caleb’s other wound, either. It’s called traumatic brain injury, or TBI, from multiple concussions.

Categorical Claim- Gives an example of PTSD
